The chapter first presents the articles included under general provisions regarding protection of cultural property in the event of armed conflict, and then lists the articles defining the regulations for the execution of such protection. The agreement was signed by the State parties considering that the preservation of the cultural heritage is of great importance for all peoples of the world and that it is important that this heritage should receive international protection. The original text of the chapter is in French.
